Vasoplegia was analysed in 225 patients undergoing heart failure surgery (left ventricular restoration, CorCap implantation or LVAD implantation). The complication was observed in 29% of patients. A higher risk was observed in patients with anaemia and higher thyroxine levels, whereas higher creatinine clearance and beta-blocker medication were associated with a lower risk.
